Lakes and Wetlands to be restored in quality and importance to their pristine status as reflected in the pages of history of the State.
The state government has sanctioned Rs 317 crore for the
development and improvement of about 68 lakes in the city.
About a decade ago, the High Court issued a directive to the BBMP to restore forty lakes. Rajesh Rao, the Founder Trustee of MAPSAS, then encouraged BBMP to consider Lower Ambalipura lake for restoration, since the Palike had sufficient funds to restore a small lake as this. BBMP agreed, and the restoration was done between 2008 and 2009, at the cost of Rs 56 lakhs.
